I just sent out emails with the following information to our large list of Kansas City disc golf enthusiasts. If you're not yet on this list, and would like to be included in future emailings, please send me an email with your name or if your prefer, post it here.
First of all, here's to a happy, healthy, and more prosperous new year to everyone.
Our single reason for writing today is let everyone know that Kansas City's 22nd Annual Ice Bowl is January 25 at Rosedale Park. Once again, there will be chili contest and a potluck lunch, provided by those who bring food to share. The KCFDC will provide beverages, bowls, utensils, and power. Ice Bowl easily Kansas City most popular events. Last year we had 296 players, helpers, and supporters. For more on this event, including the names of all 296 players: http://kcfdc.org/forum/index.php?topic=1663.msg8594#msg8594
We already have 14 players registered for Ice Bowl 2009. Pre-registration for this event really helps. Stop by Disc Golf World to sign up. You can download an entry form here:http://www.kcfdc.org/docs/icebowlkc.pdf
And finally, I’ve tracked the weather, the participation, and our charitable totals for Ice Bowl from 1996 through 2008. We had record-setting high temperatures in 2002 (64°) and 2006 (55°). In 2003, it never got above 16°. And many Chiefs fans may recall that it was on Ice Bowl Sunday in 2000 that Derrick Thomas had an automobile accident that would prove fatal later in the week. Here’s a link to the Kansas City Ice Bowl historical chart.http://www.icebowlhq.com/docs/kcibhistory.pdf
The beauty of Ice Bowl is that we never know what the weather is going to be, but that whatever the weather, the show must go on. I’m looking forward to another huge throng on January 25. My weather prediction for this year is moderate temperatures, no snow, partly cloudy, with light winds.
